A little bit of privilege

In this world, we have the haves and the have-nots. The haves are the ones toting around their latest Marc Jacobs Stam Bag, or the latest must have Louis Vuitton totes, while the have nots are the ones that walk past Gucci on King Street and peer inside and only dream.

In this world of knitting, I was a have-not. I looked on as thousands before me got invited into that elusive "Ravelry" community , wondering what special privileges those admitted to the club had received and what I was missing out on.

Well, two days ago.. I went from have not to have... I got my invitation! Given that I play sports after work, I wasn't able to have a proper play on there till today, and I love it! I could seriously spend hours on this thing, just playing and viewing and browsing. So for those that are still on the list, be a little patient :) It's definitely worth it!

(Oh, and the picture up there is the start to my Feminine Puff-Sleeved Cardigan by Stefanie Japel from her book Fitted Knits. I'm knitting it up on 4mm using Heirloom Merino Magic and making the 34 with mods for a 32).

oooh your sweater looks cute!

Ravelry has been the downfall of my knitting lately! It is hypnotizing me- you too?

Shopgirl: hehe it's hypnotizing me too! I keep browsing all the beautiful yarns and projects and now I have a gigantic queue.

It's great though because I have stash yarn that I have no idea what to use it for.. and I just put it in the "yarn" and "projects" and *voila*! Ideas galore!
